On to the scale report for the day.  This morning I weighed 174.6.  That is up 0.2 from last week, and 29.6 lbs from my ultimate goal.  I've weighed the same for three days now.  I'm feeling the difference in my body so I feel like one day soon, I'll see a big drop.  I like the way I'm eating right now.  It feels right.  It feels normal.  It feels sane.  I go to the grocery store and buy real food.  It feels good.

I am counting calories and exercise using sparkpeople.  I've been within or very close to my calorie range all week.  Only one day did I get all of my nutrients in the proper ranges.  That was the first day, so it was just beginner's luck!  Most of the time, my issue is getting enough carbs.  They've been taboo for so long it is a little difficult to wrap my mind around the fact that I can eat them.  It is freeing to be able to eat them in moderation.  I'll continue to tweak my eating so that it is healthy and I'm sure I'll see the results in my body in due time.
